SMASH hit stage show Dirty Dancing is coming to the Palace Theatre in Manchester next year as part of its first ever UK tour.
The show comes to the Palace from November 22 until January 7, 2012.
Now in its triumphant fifth year at the Aldwych Theatre, Dirty Dancing opened in the West End in 2006, breaking all box office records with advanced ticket sales of more than £15 million, which made it the fastest selling show in West End history.
The success of the London show, which will continue to play at the Aldwych Theatre, has led to overwhelming demand from fans to experience the iconic love story that is Dirty Dancing in their home cities.
Eleanor Bergstein, scriptwriter and creator of Dirty Dancing, said: “I am happy to announce the opening of the UK tour of Dirty Dancing.
“In our fifth year in London, it is still astounding for me to sit amid our audiences, many of whom I discover have planned long in advance and travelledŠfar to see us.”
